Let's hope you didn't turn this one off early in disgust.

Not that I'd blame you if you had, because Shelby Miller decided to emulate Zack Greinke by having a really crappy inning and allowing the Rockies to score six times. For variety, he did it in the fourth inning, on a trio of home-runs. That undid some long-ball work for the Diamondbacks, who had taken a two run lead on a pair of homers from Paul Goldschmidt and Jean Segura. However, the offense we saw blow past so many teams in spring training was clearly present at Chase Field, as Arizona made it a one-run game with three in the sixth, and then blew past Colorado by scoring six in the seventh.

Miller ended up actually getting through six innings, allowing six runs on eight hits and a walk with two strikeouts, but Tyler Clippard, Daniel Hudson and Jake Barrett posted three scoreless innings of relief, with Clippard getting the win. But the victory truly belongs to the offense. Goldschmidt had two hits, a walk and four RBI, while Segura had two hits and drove in three. There were also multi-hit games for David Peratta, Welington Castillo and Nick Ahmed, as the Diamondbacks pounded out 15 hits and four walks to post their first win of the 2016 campaign and even the series.
